Google suspends Trump's YouTube channel and deletes a video due to the risks of violence.




- Google :

youtube, owned by Google, on Tuesday temporarily suspended the outgoing US President Donald Trump's channel and deleted a video recording for violating the site's rules on non-incitement to violence.

YouTube said in a statement that "in light of concerns about the continuing possibility of violence, we have removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump's channel for violating our policies." The statement added that the channel is now "temporarily banned from downloading new content for at least seven days."

And before YouTube, Facebook suspended the Trump accounts on its platform and its Instagram platform, after a mob of supporters stormed the Capitol, temporarily disrupting the endorsement session for Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election.

- Twitter :

Twitter went further by shutting down Trump's account and denying him his preferred platform. Other services, such as Snapchat and Twitch, also suspended the president's accounts.

Announcing the comment last week, Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg said Trump is using the platform to incite violence, expressing concern that he will continue to do so, and the company has also removed more than 70,000 accounts linked to the Q-Anon movement, which supports the conspiracy theory that considers Donald Trump a hero.

2.77 million subscribers follow the president's YouTube account, and the president's channel home page includes a month-old video of Trump questioning the election process in the November presidential election, and the video got 5.8 million views.

On Tuesday, a group of activists called on YouTube to join other platforms in blocking Trump's accounts, threatening a campaign to boycott the ads.
